      Most disc brake pads are equipped with wear indicators. If a squealing noise occurs from the brakes while driving, check the pad wear indicator plate. If there is evidence of the indicator plate contacting the brake disc, the brake pad should be replaced.

      Remove 1 / 2 of the volume of brake fluid from the master cylinder to prevent overflow when the caliper piston is compressed.
      Raise and safely support the vehicle.
      Remove the wheel and tire assemblies.
      Remove the brake caliper without disconnecting the brake line. Support the caliper with a length of wire. Do not let the caliper hang from the brake hose.
      On some disc brake systems it is not necessary to remove the caliper when installing new brake pads. Remove the lower slide bolt and rotate the caliper upward to remove the pads.

      Remove the brake pads and shims. Inspect the brake rotor and machine or replace as necessary. Check the minimum thickness (specification is cast into the rotor) before machining.

      To install:

      Use a suitable tool to push the caliper piston into its bore.
      Apply a thin coat of grease to the rear face of the brake pad and install the shim. Install the brake pads.
      Install the calipers. Lubricate the caliper bolts and boots. If equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, tighten the caliper mounting bolts to 24 ft. lbs. (33 Nm). If equipped with a 6-cylinder engine, tighten the caliper mounting bolts to 54 ft. lbs. (74 Nm).
      Install the wheel and tire assemblies and lower the vehicle.
      Apply the brakes several times to seat the pads before moving the vehicle. Check the fluid in the master cylinder and add as necessary.

      This problem MAYBE caused by the ABS (Antilock brake syStem) hydraulic control unit, u will need to have the Honda dealer test the unit and find out if it is defective or the electronic control module is the problem.

      At first i was thinking it was a stuck caliper or something related to it but i stick with the module. Whats the mileage?

      I don't think it is a coincidence that the brake lights are staying on. I would suspect that something is holding the brake pedal from returning all the way or a sticking master cylinder.

      I would advise you to replace the flexible brake hoses on both sides.Because of the age of the vehicle these flexible hoses tend to swell on the inside so that they restrict the flow of brake fluid back to the master cylinder.This keeps the pressure in the calipers causing the brakes to lock up.

    My brake pedal feels very stiff and hardly stops the car when I apply full pressure down. What's wrong?
    I've bled all the brakes, it's topped off with dot 3 fluid. There's no brake fluid leaks, the hose from the manifold to the booster is attached. But for some reason the brake pedal is really hard or stiff and I have to push the brakes as hard as I can just to slow ...

    I hear a progressive knock while braking. Happened after changing brake pads & resurfacing rotors due to wear.
    I just purchased it about 4 months ago. The vehicle has about 160k on chassis & said weren't sure about motor as it had been changed. This symptom occurred after I did the front brakes. I re-greased caliper guide pins & upper & lower pad/shim contact points. ...

      If the light illuminated only after doing the struts then the cause will likely be a wheel speed sensor or wire leading to it that became damaged during the strut removal / install process. Read the ABS codes to identify which side is the cause.

    When breaking at stop light or stop sign a grinding sound is heard.
    Took van to have breaks checked and mechanic said everything looks okay. What else could it be? A little vibration is felt in the break pedal as well.

      Several possibilities; worn / loose front or rear wheel bearing, worn brake pads, worn / warped brake rotor. Pull the wheel to check the brake condition - maybe consider having it checked by a different repair shop.
      Any abnormal noise heard or any vibration detected is not an indication that everything is OK. Try the 'How-To-Guides' feature on this website for specific steps to check and diagnose the brake system.

      the pcm isn't communicating with the VSA control module
      that's the only code that shows up, have you tried just clearing it and seeing if it comes back?

      unplug anything recently? loose connections.. etc

      A stuck or frozen caliper might be the cause of this problem.( a clogged brake lines might be involved ).
      You might need to swap the caliper left to right and vice-versa to see if the problem will travel with the caliper.
